Miguel had a big day Tuesday (July 31). The awesomely coiffed R&B riser played Joe's Pub in New York City to celebrate the release of Kaleidoscope Dream: The Water Preview -- an EP that begins a three-stage roll-out of his sophomore album, Kaleidoscope Dream, which arrives in full Oct. 2 -- and as such, he was well-justified in making a few demands.

"May I have a water on the stage, please, and more women in the front," the L.A. singer said at one point in his performance, Rap-Up.com reports. "There's too many men up here. With all due respect, fellas, I'm not playing."

Any ladies who made their way up front got a good view of Miguel covering Tupac's "I Get Around," which he segued into his single "Quickie." Catch the performance below, via Livestream -- just be sure to gather some ladies around the monitor.
